More arrogance. Mr. Speaker, does s YOUR office need “cleaning”?

 

House Leaders Question FBI 'Invasion'

This is pure arrogance. I was not aware that the Hallowed Halls of Congress were off limits to FBI searches. They certainly have probable cause.

I see no breech in the separation of powers. The reason other congressmen are up in arms over this is they have now lost their hiding place. Where will they hide their “ill-gotten booty” now.

Cudo’s to Alberto Gonzales for having the guts to sally forth.

Gotta Love This One

An email I received this afternoon. Enjoy!


Grandmas - Gotta Love 'Em!!!

Here's a quote from a government employee who witnessed a recent
interaction between an elderly woman and an antiwar protester in a
Metro station in DC.

There were protesters on the train platform handing out pamphlets on
the evils of America. I politely declined to take one.

An elderly woman was behind me getting off the escalator and a young
20ish) female protester offered her a pamphlet, which she politely
declined.

The young protester put her hand on the old woman's shoulder as a
gesture of friendship and in a very soft voice said, "Lady, don't you
care about the children of Iraq?"

The old woman looked up at her and said, "Honey, my father died in
France during World War II, I lost my husband in Korea, and a son in
Vietnam. All three died so you could have the right to stand here and
bad mouth our country. If you touch me again, I'll stick this umbrella
up your ass and open it."

God Bless America!!

How Long Do We Have

I received this in an email this morning. It makes one think...


About the time our original 13 states adopted their new constitution, Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the University of Edinburgh, had this to say about the fall of the Athenian Republic some 2,000 years prior:

"A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship."

"The average age of the world's greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:

1. From bondage to spiritual faith;
2. From spiritual faith to great courage;
3. From courage to liberty;
4. From liberty to abundance;
5. From abundance to complacency;
6. From complacency to apathy;
7. From apathy to dependence;
8. From dependence back into bondage."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Professor Joseph Olson of Hamline University School of Law, St. Paul, Minnesota, points out some interesting facts concerning the 2000 Presidential election:


1. Population of counties won by: Gore: 127 million; Bush: 143 million;
2. Square miles of land won by: Gore: 580,000; Bush: 2,427,000;
3. States won by: Gore: 19 Bush: 29
4. Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by: Gore: 13.2, Bush: 2.1

Professor Olson adds: "In aggregate, the map of the territory Bush won was mostly the land owned by the tax-paying citizens of this great country. Gore's territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in government-owned tenements living off government welfare."

Olson believes the United States is now somewhere between the "complacency and apathy" phase of Professor Tyler's definition of democracy, with some 40 percent of the nation's population already having reached the "governmental dependency" phase.

Pass this along to help everyone realize just how much is at stake, knowing that apathy is the greatest danger to our freedom.

This Should Get Our Attention

I received this in my email this morning from a family member. My comments are below the message.

We know Dick Lamm as the former Governor of Colorado. In that context
his thoughts are particularly poignant. Last week there was an
immigration overpopulation conference in Washington, DC, filled to
capacity by many of American's finest minds and leaders. A brilliant
college professor by the name of Victor Hansen Davis talked about his
latest book, "Mexifornia," explaining how immigration - both legal and
illegal was destroying th e entire state of California. He said it
would march across the country until it destroyed all vestiges of The
American Dream.

Moments later, former Colorado Governor Richard D. Lamm stood up and
gave a stunning speech on how to destroy America. The audience sat
spellbound as he described eight methods for the destruction of the
United States. He said, "If you believe that America is too smug, too
self-satisfied, too rich, then let's destroy America. It is not that
hard to do. No nation in history has survived the ravages of time.
Arnold Toynbee observed that all great civilizations rise and fall and
that 'An autopsy of history would show that all great nations commit
suicide.'"

Here is how they do it," Lamm said:

"First, to destroy America, turn America into a bilingual or
multi-lingual and bicultural country." History shows that no nation
can survive the tension, conflict, and antagonism of two or more
competing languages and cultures. It is a blessing for an individual
to be bilingual; however, it is a curse fo r a society to be bilingual.
The historical scholar, Seymour Lipset, put it this way: "The
histories of bilingual and bi-cultural societies that do not
assimilate are histories of turmoil, tension, and tragedy." Canada,
Belgium, Malaysia, and Lebanon all face crises of national existence
in which minorities press for autonomy, if not independence. Pakistan
and Cyprus have divided. Nigeria suppressed an ethnic rebellion.
France faces difficulties with Basques, Bretons, and Corsicans.

Lamm went on: "Second, to destroy America, invent 'multiculturalism'
and encourage immigrants to maintain their culture. I would make it an
article of belief that all cultures are equal, that there are no
cultural differences. I would make it an article of faith that the
Black and Hispanic dropout rates are due solely to prejudice and
discrimination by the majority. Every other explanation is out of
bounds."
"Third, we could make the United States an 'Hispanic Quebec' without
much effort. The key is to celebrate diversity rather than unity." As
Benjamin Schwarz said in the Atlantic Monthly recently: "The apparent
success of our own multiethnic and multicultural experiment might have
been achieved not by tolerance but by hegemony. Without the dominance
that once dictated ethnocentricity and what it meant to be an
American, we are left with only tolerance and pluralism to hold us
together." Lamm said, "I would encourage all immigrants to keep their
own language and culture. I would replace the melting pot metaphor
with the salad bowl metaphor. It is important to ensure that we have
various cultural subgroups living in America enforcing their
differences rather than as Americans, emphasizing their similarities."

"Fourth, I would make our fastest growing demographic group the least
educated. I would add a second underclass, unassimilated,
undereducated, and antagonistic to our population. I would have this
second underclass have a 50% dropout rate from high school."

"My fifth point for destroying America would be to get big foundations
and business to give these efforts lots of money. I would invest in
ethnic identity, and I would establish the cult of 'Victimology.' I
would get all minorities to think that their lack of success was the
fault of the majority. I would start a grievance industry blaming all
minority failure on the majority population."
"My sixth plan for America's downfall would include dual citizenship
and promote divided loyalties. I would celebrate diversity over unity.
I would stress differences rather than similarities. Diverse people
worldwide are mostly engaged in hating each other - that is, when they
are not killing each other. A diverse, peaceful, or stable society is
aga inst most historical precedent. People undervalue the unity it
takes to keep a nation together. Look at the ancient Greeks. The
Greeks believed that they belonged to the same race; they possessed a
common language and literature; and they worshipped the same gods. All
Greece took part in the Olympic games. A common enemy, Persia,
threatened their liberty. Yet all these bonds were not strong enough
to overcome two factors: local patriotism and geographical conditions
that nurtured political divisions. Greece fell. "E. Pluribus Unum" --
From many, one. In that historical reality, if we put the emphasis on the
Pluribus' instead of the 'Unum,' we will balkanize America as
surely as Kosovo."

"Next to last, I would place all subjects off limits; make it taboo to
talk about anything against the cult of 'diversity.' I would find a
word similar to 'heretic' in the 16th century - that stopped
discussion and paralyzed thinking. Words like 'racist' or 'xenophobe'
halt discussion and debate. Having made America a bilingual/bi-cultural
country, having established multiculturalism, having the large
foundations fund the doct rine of 'Victimology,' I would next make it
impossible to enforce our immigration laws. I would develop a mantra:
that because immigration has been good for America, it must always be
good. I would make every individual immigrant symmetric and ignore the
cumulative impact of millions of them."

In the last minute of his speech, Governor Lamm wiped his brow.
Profound silence followed. Finally he said, "Lastly, I would censor
Victor Hanson Davis's book Mexifornia. His book is dangerous. It
exposes the plan to destroy America. If you feel America deserves to
be destroyed, don't read that book."

There was no applause. A chilling fear quietly rose like an ominous
cloud above every attendee at the conference. Every American in that
room knew that everything Lamm enumerated was proceeding methodically,
quietly, darkly, yet pervasively across the United States today.
Discussion is being suppressed. Over 100 languages are ripping the
foundation of our educational system and national cohesiveness. Even
barbaric cultures that practice female genital mutilation are
growing as we celebrate 'diversity.' American jobs are vanishing into
the Third World as corporations create a Third World in America. Take
note of California and other states - to date, ten million illegal
aliens and growing fast. It is reminiscent of George Orwell's book
"1984." In that story, three slogans are engraved in the Ministry of
Truth building: "War is peace," "Freedom is Slavery," and, "Ignorance
is Strength."

Governor Lamm walked back to his seat. It dawned on everyone at the
conference that our nation and the future of this great democracy is
deeply in trouble and worsening fast. If we don't get this immigration
monster stopped within three years, it will rage like a California
wildfire and destroy everything in its path, especially The American
Dream.

Max's Comments:
Thought provoking? Pass this on.

Anyone that does not understand that the Mexicans are assimilating our country is a complete idiot, insult intended. This is a very chilling article.

Mr. Hanson is on my daily read list of Blog’s. His insight into the issues of today are staggering. I have not read his book “Mexifornia”, but will be at the bookstore tomorrow.

I do not know this article's origins, but if anyone out there does I would appreciate the information.

The President on NSA Phone Records




THE PRESIDENT: After September the 11th, I vowed to the American people that our government would do everything within the law to protect them against another terrorist attack. As part of this effort, I authorized the National Security Agency to intercept the international communications of people with known links to al Qaeda and related terrorist organizations. In other words, if al Qaeda or their associates are making calls into the United States or out of the United States, we want to know what they're saying.
Today there are new claims about other ways we are tracking down al Qaeda to prevent attacks on America. I want to make some important points about what the government is doing and what the government is not doing.
First, our international activities strictly target al Qaeda and their known affiliates. Al Qaeda is our enemy, and we want to know their plans. Second, the government does not listen to domestic phone calls without court approval. Third, the intelligence activities I authorized are lawful and have been briefed to appropriate members of Congress, both Republican and Democrat. Fourth, the privacy of ordinary Americans is fiercely protected in all our activities.
We're not mining or trolling through the personal lives of millions of innocent Americans. Our efforts are focused on links to al Qaeda and their known affiliates. So far we've been very successful in preventing another attack on our soil.
As a general matter, every time sensitive intelligence is leaked, it hurts our ability to defeat this enemy. Our most important job is to protect the American people from another attack, and we will do so within the laws of our country.
Thank you.

Oil Executive Assassinated

Over the years working in the oil patch, I have had several opportunities to work in Nigeria. I have turned all of them down.

A Nigerian Story
A few years ago, some business associates and myself had an oil sale going on in Nigeria for crude oil (bonny light). Everything was in place, but they would not let the first tanker enter Nigerian waters due to red tape. It was at anchor for three weeks. Finally, the owners claimed Force Majure and pulled out of the charter. We cancelled all other charters after this and pulled the plug at that point.

We found out later that someone at NNPC (Nigerian National Petroleum Company) was not paid off, and he screwed everyone involved. It is tough getting crude out of Nigeria. NNPC is so damned corrupt at every level. All of us lost a hefty commission on this one.

Speaking of Softball ...

Not exactly fighting "fire with fire", is it? What a shame. Thanks to Jimmah Cattah, we now have this lunatic to deal with.

There has not been peace in the Middle East in recorded history. Think there will be in the future? I doubt it, at least not in our lifetime.

What is needed here is to stand our ground. Draw a line in the sand and DARE them, or any other radical nation, to cross it. We have the weapons in our arsenal to confront any enemy. We have to have the will (political and stomach) to use them.
